I decided to explore a little with this wild raven painting, I used a palette knife and oils to express a likeness of this feathered creature. From what I have read the black feathers of a raven shine with a blue cast when caught by the sun's rays. They can also grow to be 24 inches tall. Ravens are proud intelligent birds that like to forage in quiet areas. Thinking about these beautiful wild ravens made for, "A Painting Day".
